The latest version of LO says it introduces a "tabbed interface." Perhaps you don't know what a tabbed interface is. Look at any web browser. What you have introduced is that god-awful ribbon interface. Years ago, IBM produced a product named Lotus Symphony, which was basically a better interface on top of OpenOffice code. It had a real "tabbed interface." It opened 1 single window, with every document on a separate tab in that window. When IBM/Lotus discontinued that product, they released the code to the OpenOffice community. Yet years later, neither OO nor LO seem able to produce a product that is capable of having 1 window with every document on a separate tab in that window, something web browsers have been doing practically forever. LO, OO, and even MS Office still need a separate window for every document. This gets pretty messy when you have 10 documents open. I have 2 requests/suggestions:
1. Stop calling your new interface by the false name "tabbed interface."
2. Produce a product with a real "tabbed interface." IBM/Lotus has given you the code. It shouldn't be much more difficult than a copy/paste operation.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open 10 documents.
2. Count how many separate windows are open.
3. Open 10 web pages in any browser.
4. Count how many separate windows are open.
Step 2 = 10 separate windows are open.
Step 4 = 1 window is open with 10 tabs.
LO should include capabilities that have been available for decades, the code for which was donated to them by IBM/Lotus.

Yes, my OS is 64 bit. Don't know why you say it isn't.
Whay you’re asking for is called MDI, short for “multiple-document interface”, and there is already an enhancement request open for implementing that.
> IBM/Lotus has given you the code
FYI… No, it hasn’t. Ever wondered why hasn’t AOO added MDI either? Now you know.
